    Default The Magic Roundabout- Dougal swearing

    Does anybody remember a notorious episode of The Magic Roundabout in which Dougal told Brian Snail to bugger off? It was on c.early 1976- Dougal was arguing with Brian and swore thus at him. Apparently the culprit was a BBC sound engineer who'd recently been made redundant, and was getting back at his employers.
    It all sounded perfectly in line with the dialogue, there was no change in accent or voice tone. It didn't even surprise me, since Dougal was so boorish and rude, and Brian such a little upstart, that it sounded like the sort of thing that he WOULD say to him! It was all over the 'papers the following day though.

    Sounds tame compared to somebody voicing an opinion (and swearing) about Five Star on Going Live but I reckon this was just a publicity stunt set up.

    Hated Brian. Loved the rest of them. I've got the feature film Doogal and the Blue Cat on dvd and its brilliant. It even has the French original on it....the CGI recent film was utter dog poo. My favourite character off the original is Florence.

    Didn't know about The Blue Cat but I'm definitely going to take a look.

    My Cat's name is Buxton.

    He's blue.
    Their light of pocket torch, of signal flare,
    Licks at the edge of unsuspected places,
    While others scan, under an arc-lamp's glare,
    Nursery, kitchen sink, or their own faces.

    I think they were different incidents, but it's part of the risk when doing a like phone in.

    In the original French version, when the dog announces himself with "C'est moi, Pollux!", it sounds a bit like swearing. ;-)
